    Marvel Graphic Novel Volume 4 - 1st printing.

    Written by Chris Claremont. Art and cover by Bob McLeod.

    Featuring the Origin and 1st appearance of New Mutants.

    Thinking that the X-Men are dead (they are actually only off in space facing the Brood), Moira convinces Professor Xavier to gather the next generation of mutants after she rescues a local girl who can turn into a wolf; Professor X begins contacting the kids only to find that the young mutants are being attacked by Hellfire Soldiers sent by Donald Pierce to kill them. Arriving in Kentucky, Xavier and Rahne are attacked by the rocket blasting Sam Guthrie who has been duped into working for Pierce and Professor X is captured. The young mutants band together to save Xavier before Pierce can suck his mind dry.

    Returning to the mansion after the conflict, Professor X gives his new young charges uniforms and, once the penitent Sam comes calling and is accepted into their ranks, the roster is filled and the New Mutants are born.
